Explore intercropping topic with Green Asia Global’s Chairman & CEO, Mr. Ly Thanh Binh at 3rd RubberPlant Summit
Posted on : 21 Feb, 2013
Experiments in South China as well as extensive research on intercropping have shown that greater yield is achievable on a single piece of land. With careful planning and consideration of factors such as soil, climate, crops and varieties, intercropping is highly achievable and can help rubber farmers significantly.
Rubber investment has been on the rise especially in Asian countries such as Cambodia where industry witnessed significant increase in rubber investment of more than 100%.
A key economic crop, rubber plays an important role in Cambodia’s economy and is hence essential for it to be economically viable and sustainable, especially when the first five to eight years warrant neither yield nor return.
With continuous research, companies such as Green Asia Global have come up with expertise in agroforestry including the field of intercropping common crops including sweet potatoes, cassava and maize.
Chairman & CEO of Green Asia Global, Mr. Ly Thanh Binh, will be presenting his paper on “Economic Feasibility of Intercropping Rubber with Cassava” at the 3rd RubberPlant Summit in Yangon, 13-15 March, going into
· Biofuel production plan for Cambodia
· Market for cassava as biofuel crop n Cambodia
· Domestic demand and export capacity of rubber in Cambodia
· Issues and challenges of intercropping rubber with cassava

Felda Global Ventures seizing opportunities – moving into Myanmar
Posted on : 13 Feb, 2013
Opportunities abound in Myanmar following the country’s economic liberation. Owing to its suitable agro-climatic conditions and vast bare lands, especially the middle region, Myanmar is fast emerging as the choice destination for rubber investments.
Felda Global Ventures (FGV) Holdings is one that is taking advantage of the economic and business opportunities that Myanmar presents. The group has plans to develop its three core businesses in Myanmar, including rubber, palm oil and sugar cane.
FGV has successfully reached an agreement and signed the MoU with local partner, Pho La Min Trading Ltd, in the exploration of rubber plantations and rubber processing in Myanmar. With this, FGV plans to first establish the processing plant before moving on to the growing of rubber trees in Myeik on a vast 30,000 hectares land, and finally to downstream opportunities including tire manufacturing and the rubber gloves market.
Market demands will see a spike once other sectors such as infrastructure, transportation and healthcare are developed.
Gaining first mover advantage, FGV will benefit from their early entrance into the Myanmar market.
More on the opportunities and challenges of Myanmar’s rubber scene as well as innovations updates at the industry event of the year, the 3rd RubberPlant Summit.
